    I drive a 92 accord wagon with a stock f22 engine in it and i wanna go vtec. i was considering just doing an h22 swap, but i'd rather stick with the f22 block for the thicker cylinder walls in case i go for forced induction down the road. also, i am pretty sure a head would be cheaper than a whole engine.. to the best of my knowledge it should be a straight bolt on.. not too sure tho. also, i have no idea when it comes to what i'd hafta do to the ecu.. any ideas? i'd love to hear em before i do this with no real idea if it'll work or not

    appreciate the help. from the vtec fblocks ive seen it looks like it'll be pretty damn near a direct fit. still a bunch of little things that are typical with any swap tho..

    yea it will drop right in and bolt right up to your stock 5spd tranny all you need to do is run a few wires for vtec
